Abstract
Laser driven gas-phase synthesis in a flow reactor was employed for the production of carbon and silicon cluster beams starting from gaseous compounds. It is based on a CO2-laser-induced decomposition of molecular gases containing carbon and silicon, such as C2H2 and SiH4. By introducing a skimmer into the reaction zone, the generated clusters are transferred to the free molecular flow and analyzed with a time-of-flight mass spectrometer. These clusters were deposited on a silicon or saphire target at room temperature. Micro-Raman spectroscopy techniques was used for- characterization of this deposits. The present studies show that the laser-driven nucleation in a flow reactor is a powerful technique to produce fullerenes and silicon quantum dots and other nano-size semiconductors or high-temperature evaporated materials.
